Security Year in Review: Honeypots
by Mirko Zorz - Monday, 16 December 2002.
If you're interested in learning more about honeypots I strongly suggest you pay a visit to the Honeynet Project. In their own words: "The Honeynet Project is a non-profit research group of thirty security professionals dedicated to information security. We have no income or revenue, all of our research is done on a volunteer basis. It is our goal to learn the tools, tactics, and motives of the blackhat community and share these lessons learned. It is hoped that our research will benefit both its members and the security community." They are the best resource to learn about honeypots - you can read the whitepapers and try some of the tools for honeynets available for download.



In the news

There have been numerous stories about Honeypots in the news during this year, here are some of the most interesting ones:

Spotlight

Cloned, booby-trapped Dark Web sites steal bitcoins, login credentials

Apart from being a way for dissidents and journalists to do their business without being spotted and identified by "the powers that be", the Dark Web is also a place where criminals sell and buy illegal wares and services and, apparently, where they also get robbed by scammers.
